Addie, I'm curious. Which of the 911 hijackers was your neighbor? I don't see where any of them were Palestinian. Wikipedia
says all but two were Saudi, and the other two were Lebanese and Egyptian.
I just knew him as Mohamed. (sp) Mr. Ali, his landlord said that he came from his country. And I knew he was Palestinian. There were pictures of Palestine on the walls of his sub shop. He used to go there every year to visit family. His daughter's name was the same as mine. Adele. Living next door, our mail always got mixed up. I could never pronounce his wife's name. He was he pilot of the American Airliines plane that hit Tower One.
I am not one to aks questions. And when they can't speak English very well, all the more I just sit there and pretend to listen. Some times Mr. Ali's daughter would have to tell me what they were saying.
